Event description

Description

Is France on the brink of a political revolution? Marine Le Pen, former leader of the Front National, has made it through the first round of the French presidential elections. Another outsider Emmanuel Macron, is now the only person standing between her and the Élysée Palace. A Le Pen victory, however unlikely it may seem, would be a political earthquake for the European Union. Should we welcome a shake-up in the cradle of European revolutions?

Chaired by Andrew Neil and speakers include:

  • Melissa Bell, CNN Paris correspondent

  • Jonathan Fenby, Author and historian

  • Dominique Moisi, founder and senior advisor at the Ilfri (the French Institute for International Relations)

  • Anne-Élisabeth Moutet, journalist and political commentator

  • Robert Tombs, professor of French History at St John's College, Cambridge
